General Counsel @ Early-stage Consumer Lending FinTech
New York City
In a lot of ways, this opportunity is the best of both worlds. All the upside of joining a promising FinTech as General Counsel to build out their legal function and shape the company’s trajectory as a member of the senior leadership team, but with the resources and backing of an established and sophisticated mission-driven venture investor that truly helps on the operational side.
The executive team is seasoned and “grown-up,” so you won’t be the only adult in the room. Be a true legal and business partner, providing critical advice to the CEO on relevant regulations, risk, operations, corporate development and everything else. You will truly have a hand in contributing to the success of the business while the company grows through this pivotal juncture of its life cycle!
You’ll be a solo General Counsel to start, so embodying a startup mindset is required; roll up those sleeves! A corporate/transactional background with experience in lending is ideal.
